Banners were placed Sunday morning, May 24, saluting all 72 members of the Shenandoah High School Class of 2020. The banners, funded by our Shenandoah Iowa Education Foundation, are hanging on a fence along Tennis Court Road on the west side of Mustang Field, so that they're easily accessible for viewing and for photographs. The banners were hung by members of the family of Aaron Burdorf, the Shenandoah High activities director. The banners go to class members after being displayed for a week. Because of the threat of the corona virus, class members have already taken part in the videotaping of a "virtual commencement," which will be released Sunday afternoon, May 31, on both the KMA and Shenandoah Schools websites. A live graduation ceremony is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, July 19, at Mustang Field.
